Mary Mary Quite Contrary

See this?

I grew this!

These are French Breakfast Radishes from my garden. I don't think I've ever been so excited about radishes before. While at my little plot of soil, I found that my peas are also doing very well- in fact, I need to find more trellis for them to climb on, they're growing like crazy. My beans need to be thinned- I think. Do beans need to be thinned? And today I also found blossoms on my tomato plants. I'm so excited! It looks like my lettuce did a big fat nothing though, which is fine, what I really wanted were beans and tomatoes. So far so good...

I alluded to another little project yesterday. And even though I already find myself swamped at times keeping my various blogs updated, I felt like I wanted to add another one to my repertoire. See, I'm quite the reader. I read a lot of books. I can read a book in a day if I feel like it, I just so enjoy reading. Next to cooking, it's my favorite thing to do. So I started a blog called The Savvy Bookworm, where I am going to attempt to chronicle my reading. Mostly it's for my personal reference, but it may be helpful to anyone else looking for book reviews. Give it a peek if you have an inkling.

That's all for today. It's been a long day for me, and I'm ready to turn in early I think. Tomorrow...the return of Weigh-In Wednesday.

I got some of those in my CSA box this week. What do you do with them? (From a non-radish fan) :)

Hey Helios! Right now we're just eating them straight up. DH loves radishes right from the ground. We also like them in potato salad, but I have every intention of trying a radish spread from A Veggie Venture. Check it out here: http://kitchen-parade-veggieventure.blogspot.com/2006/05/easy-easy-radish-spread.html

It looks really good and easy to boot.
